Tennessee running back DERRICK HENRY registered 159 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in the Titans‘ 42-20 win against Jacksonville.

In the third quarter, Henry recorded rushing touchdowns of 74 and seven yards in a 16-second span and became the first player since Pro Football Hall of Famer LADAINIAN TOMLINSON (two touchdowns in 15 seconds in Week 10, 2006) to score two touchdowns within a 20-second span in a single game.

With his 74-yard touchdown run, Henry joined NAPOLEON KAUFMAN (1997-99) and ROBERT SMITH (1997-2000) as the only players in NFL history to record a rushing touchdown of at least 70 yards in three consecutive seasons.

Philadelphia tight end ZACH ERTZ recorded 12 receptions, including the 500th of his career, for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles‘ Week 12 loss against Seattle.

Ertz, appearing in his 102nd career game, became the second-fastest tight end in NFL history to reach 500 career receptions, trailing only Pro Football Hall of Famer KELLEN WINSLOW SR. (101 games).

Ertz has 11 career games with at least 10 receptions, tied with JASON WITTEN (11 games) for the second-most such games by a tight end in NFL history. Only Pro Football Hall of Famer TONY GONZALEZ (15) had more.

Cleveland linebacker JOE SCHOBERT registered four passes defensed and two interceptions in the Browns‘ 41-24 win against Miami.

Schobert, who also had two interceptions in Week 11, is the fourth linebacker to record multiple interceptions in consecutive games in the Super Bowl era, joining AL BEAUCHAMP (Weeks 11-12 in 1971), CATO JUNE (Weeks 5-6 in 2005) and STAN WHITE (Weeks 7-8 in 1977).
